Lament and Chant
Lament and Chant for Guitar Duo by Glenn Caluda. In memory of the victims and heroes of our war torn world Lament and Chant is based on the Gregorian chant “Lux Eterna” from the Requiem Mass (for the dead) combined with a non related Lament. All motives are derived from these two themes. An overall feeling of reverence is pervasive until the music approaches the section depicting the chaos of war, temporarily interrupted by the Chant, then resuming the chaos. Distant bells usher in the return of the pure chant which slows and then fades.
